! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is between 30 and 50 percent.
NOTE: Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. The term "anywhere" is not used in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) questionnaire; students are simply asked how many days they carried a weapon during the past 30 days. In the question that asks students about carrying a weapon at school, "on school property" was not defined for survey respondents.
